Subject description: FirstRUN is an invisible "Puppy Unique" technology for ease of use
 

@Shinobar a few years ago, inspired this community by presenting technology to take a booting PC all the way to a functional desktop without the delays that were customary in the "text-based" approach used in "days of old". Additionally @Shinobar assisted several developers addressing individual needs for PUPPY use of this technology.

This is an excellent service for many-many obvious reasons over the old method. In addition to it getting the user speedily to the desktop, it also provides a "simple standard education" to any USER for what his PC is. Further, the user gains confidence and understanding as they, personally and safely, controls his/her system, from FirstRUN's management screen.

The approach he introduced began to get good use among the PUP distro developers, and BarryK adopted and made additional revisions to what is used by many developers in today's PUPs.

In a single screen, he not only captures all of the elements of the old boot steps, but advances all of that with a "single-screen visual" of most of the elements any PC needs to participate on a home LAN network needing to reach the internet with no impact as well as speedily covering the local desktop requirements.

A single screen, initial start, that is so outrageously clever most of us see it as all too obvious for a systems desktop's start. In short, it replaced all the individual unforgiving steps to a user-friendly, understandable, single visual for system starts.

Further, without having to hunt down individual utilities to do any of what it offers, a user, at ANY time can go to the Puppy Menu>Setup>"FirstRUN" and on their desktops they will view what they set, or modify the base system's requirement as needed.

Barry Kauler has retired. He has given much of his life to getting us to where we are today. This has left @FirstRUN without a thread for any needs which would arise as Puppy moves from its WOOF roots to the WOOFCE approach now used for new Puppy distros.

This thread intends to be a pointer to another thread dedicated for developers/users of FirstRUN and any improvements it would offer to the Puppy community. That would be a place where developers would know about its latest version (similar to what is provided in the GRUB4DOS thread). As well, it would also provide developers a place for contributions and a place for user reports.

This thread is opened as a pointer to FirstRUN, its thread on the forum. This technology is a Puppy Linux exclusive.
